Abstract : Volume III of the three-volume set contains detailed documentation of computer software used to support research on two-sided, user-controlled, dynamic wargaming. The current volume is intended for systems programmers/ technical personnel who are interested in specifics of implementation. Complete program listings are provided. The project emphasizes that a battlefield planner can work in harmony with computer graphics to structure and analyze battlefield situations. Special tactical displays and dynamic replays of events are designed to aid the planner. Volume I, published as ARI Research Report 1247, provides a functional description of the research for Army managers, command staffs, and other potential users of the concepts. Volume II, ARI Technical Report 455, is intended for readers with specialized interests in research and development of interactive graphics for battlefield applications.
